Seafood is good for your heart and brain.

Seafood is low in fat, high in protein, and rich in nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3's provide protection from heart disease and are an important brain food for you, your children, and your unborn child.

Advisories and consumption guidelines are designed to help you gain these health benefits while protecting you and your family from contaminants in fish and shellfish.

For more information about fish and shellfish advisories in Oregon, or contaminants and their health effects, call the Oregon Health Authority at 1-877-290-6767.
